Why the USDA is killing off its vegetable fertilizer industry

The USDA has ordered that all its agricultural and food processing chemicals be used in more sustainable ways, with fewer of the chemicals found in current production, The Washington Times reported on Friday.

The chemical-laden fertilizer and its byproducts have long been seen as a major environmental threat, as they can damage land and pollute water sources.

Now, the USDA has decided to phase out its most widely used pesticide, which is used in millions of U.S. farms and to fertilize a wide variety of crops.

The move comes after a series of chemical-related scandals, including one that implicated the agency in the poisoning of a lab worker.

The chemicals have been blamed for the spread of bacteria resistant to the flu vaccine.

The announcement follows a series from the USDA this year, when it decided to ban the use of glyphosate, a chemical used in the production of the popular weed killer Roundup.

It also followed a public outcry over the use and misuse of the chemical-laced fertilizer Agent Orange, which caused cancer and birth defects in Vietnam veterans.

“We’re going to have to start moving toward a more sustainable use of these chemicals,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a statement.

The USDA’s move is a victory for the agriculture industry, and comes as a result of an investigation into the agency’s use of herbicides in Vietnam.

The government has said it would look into the matter and take action, though Vilsacks office said the agency had not yet decided on a course of action.

The decision comes after several years of efforts by the agency to curb chemical use.

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization reported last year that herbicides were the top cause of crop deaths in the U.s.

The agency banned the use in 2006 and then implemented a voluntary ban in 2009, a move that has helped ease the problem.

The new decision to phase in the use comes after years of public pressure.

“These are the most difficult decisions for a government to make,” Vilsackers office said in announcing the new direction.

“They have had to take unprecedented measures to try to protect farmers from a threat that has now been identified.”

The announcement comes after the USDA ordered the use last year of a less-than-substantially effective herbicide called imidacloprid, which the agency said had contributed to the spread and increase in resistance to the vaccine.
